we shared a wonderful meal for a large group. They served 3 pastas family style..the ravioli with truffle sauce was out of this world. I recommend the florentine steak...but not by yourself!

The double salad was good. The bread was good. The main course was greasy and over salted. It was the most disappointing meal I have had in 2.5 weeks in Tuscany. The restaurant is located in a beautiful spot.

The salad was good, but the meat and fish dry and overcooked. The pasta was bland. A mixed grill dish turned out to be deep fried, with hard, encrusted lumps of chicken, turkey and beef swamped in grease. We left most of the food uneaten. When the owner was consulted, he responded that "everyone loves my food."

The most beautiful restaurant! We visited here whilst staying in the Borgo Petrognano opposite. The staff are so friendly and helpful but I fell that another staff member would be good as service was slow when the restaurant was busy. The setting is beautiful with a gorgeous garden setting and the tables are decorated beautifully. The cats and dog are... More

We were staying across the street and lucky for us, this was a good restaurant because we did not want to travel too far for dinner. We ended up eating there twice, and had some great wine and food. to try something different, I tried the pigeon and it was excellent. We even made friends with the cat.

This was the nearest restaurant to the villa we stayed in 'Borgo Petrognano' just a 5 minute walk away, the owners and staff are very friendly and the food superb, we visited three times during our stay, the place is large, it has beautiful gardens and a kids area, well worth a visit.

We had not been to this restaurant for many years. So many of our favourite restaurants in the Chianti area have closed their doors in the last couple of years. We had heard from residents in the area that this restaurant was still in the same family hands and that the quality of the food and the service was still... More

If you come in this season, you will immediately notice the wonderful roses everywhere in the restaurant gardens....simply stunning! We had dinner in the small tower which is definitely charming and very cozy. Food is very good and portions are huge. Their antipasto platter is truly big and filling (tempura veggies were a bit salty, othern than that...perfect!) so don't... More

The dishes were plated very nicely and looked professional, though parts of the main course which was Pork was still red (raw) in the middle. When we told the waiter he did seem shocked that it was indeed served raw, so he took the dish away... He did offer another dish, though at that point everyone else had already eaten,... More
